Dancing in the Park, Park & Play cancelled this summer

City summer events cancelled

The City of Kelowna has announced Dancing in the Park and Park & Play have been cancelled this summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“We’re disappointed that two of our free community events can’t go ahead this summer, but we didn’t feel we would be able to modify the programs in a way that ensured the Provincial Health Orders could be maintained,” said Mariko Siggers, community & neighbourhood services manager.

“We recognize that family events are important to our community, so we’re taking this time to make these programs even better in the years to come.”

A short anonymous survey to help plan for next summer’s community events and takes just five to 10 minutes to complete.

Residents looking to connect with neighbours this summer for small get-togethers can request to borrow the Strong Neighbourhoods “Meet Your Street Kit”. 

This allows you to enjoy a variety of games including stacking cups, ladder ball, bocce and giant Connect 4. An instructor will be available to support by overseeing the games and ensuring the equipment is cleaned regularly. 

Since 2010, Dancing in the Park has been featured at Stuart Park on Wednesday evenings throughout July and August. 

Park & Play is a free all-ages event that usually runs weeknights throughout July and August at various parks throughout the city featuring bouncers, activities, games and on select evenings, also includes ParksAlive musical entertainment. Park & Play has been running in Kelowna since 2008.
